It’s been a few years since the Momokuri anime series made its way out with streaming and then getting some home video release love. Sentai Filmworks did the show well with both DVD and Blu-ray releases but they never rolled out the trailer on their channel, relegating it to just their home video releases. They’ve added that to their channel and we’ve got it to check out below as the series is still in print and is currently streaming on HIDIVE.
Also, check out the opening sequence with the song “Daisuki dayo Daisuki dayo Umarete kite Arigatou” by Yuki Kurihara & Shinya Momotsuki as well as the closing sequence which features “Eternal Explorer” by Mia REGINA.
Check out our review of the series.
The property is based on the manga of the same name from Kurose, which is part of the Comic web manga app and began back in 2014.
The show was directed by Yoshimasa Hiraike and was animated at Satelight. The cast includes Ai Kakuma as Yuki Kurihara, Nobuhiko Okamoto as Shinya Momotsuki, Naomi Ōzora as Norika Mizuyama, Rena Maeda as Rio Sakaki, Sayaka Nakaya as Yuzuki Shimada, Reina Takeshita as Ikue Usami, Yoshitaka Yamaya as Rihito Sawaguchi.
Plot concept: For the longest time, Yuki Kurihara has been obsessed with Shinya Momotsuki (aka Momo), and her crush is a little more extreme than writing his name surrounded with dozens of hearts in her binder. In fact, Kurihara does things outside the realm of a typical high school girl… like secretly following him, taking pictures of everything he does, and collecting anything he happens to discard and drop. The funny thing? Despite being considered rather cute by most girls, Momo is relatively inexperienced with the opposite sex, explaining why he misses the warning signs of her fixation. However, now that he and Kurihara are going out, is it possible that a little obsession might not be such a bad thing? Love can be strange, and it’s about to get even stranger in MOMOKURI!
